Along with it came the poster, the Chima Speedorz, and no Han. I plan to contact Lego to see where the Han went (there was a disconcerting gap in the shipping box where it was poorly taped, but others here have said their Han's were missing too and Lego will send them separately?).
The Chima freebie is not a total surprise--I've gotten an unexpected collectible minifig in a past order. My guess is it's Lego's way of hooking you into new themes. Chima, like CMF's, Ninjago, and for that matter Bionicle, is probably designed to be a craze. I doubt it's a failure, not yet anyway.
Anyhow, my wife and I began building the B-Wing together last night. So far it's a great build, though we've only gotten through the third bag. The more I learn about this set, the more I realize I would have paid much more for it--it really is a great model. Great for two people, too--the engine is a 2X so we each built one, side by side, and there's looking to be lots of symmetry.
It's like eating a cookie. Do it slow and you'll enjoy it for more time. ;-)
I really enjoyed the build on both models. The size of both just puts a smile on my face. I was really impressed with the wing mechanism on the X-wing compared to the way they do the system models. The only downside of course is the cockpit stickers.
But that's just crazy talk.
I must say the final product does look quite fantastic and much larger than what you think it is when flipping through a catalog. Pictures, as we always seem to say in regards to LEGO sets, don't do this beauty justice.
So offer still stands, if you have 1 or 2 to spare at the deal cost plus shipping let me know, keep your Han and donate your speedorz to the good cause above...
If you don't want them, contact @sidersdd who is donating them to his local children's hospital.
They make it rather discrete, which makes it all the more exciting when your package "randomly" comes in the mail.
For a moment back there, there was a thread title with the word 'Legos' in it, but it has now been merged here, and the universe is in harmony once more. LOL
I usually don't mind the usage, but... in. a. thread title... too... much... to take... HULK SMASH LEGOS
If you do say legos *uhuhuhuhuhuh* (Sideshow Bob shudder), don't take offence (old discussion, been had), I was just having a joke.
Nick Fury: when we need them, they will come.
Just joking! :-)
I feel like I'm cheating on my wife with Lego.
That said, safely inside now. Han poly, Yoda poster, and a copy of #70113 were included. I think the Speedor set is destined to be a prize at a LUG event later this year. Honestly, I'm a little shocked to see a $20 set included with as an extra. That's pretty darn cool, considering the smoking deal US buyers already got on the B-Wing. (sorry non-US folks, I do feel a smidge guilty)
EDIT: Looking at the parts list...does anyone else think the head for Wakz looks kind of like Grumpy Cat?
Oh well, at least I know what to give my son's friends for their birthday
By the way, did everyone get 4x6 Mr. Gold stickers in your packages as well ? I would imagine this was the same stickers they gave away during "Find Mr. Gold" promo on May 6th.
Sadly, this is most like the closest I will get to finding a Mr. Gold
@dragonhawk, i didn't even realize that Mr Gold sheet was a sticker, lol. Thanks.
I didn't notice that either. I just thought it was a 'blow in ad'. I had to give it a second look, in good light, and look at it as a sticker. It sure had me fooled. :-)
Now, what exactly am I gonna stick it on? It's a pretty big sticker.
I mean, I'm pretty sure it's the LEGO fairy. The doorbell rings and LEGOS appear! It can't be UPS. I never see a truck, a driver, anything. Just a doorbell ring and LEGOS! Yeah, now that I think about it - it must be the LEGO fairy.
Anyway the chima set was in the box, which I haven't been impressed with chima from the first time I saw them. Now that he got the free set and played with them yesterday, I can say even if we weren't on a strick Star Wars only LEGO diet we wouldn't be investing in any chima. I can't imagine how many millions they have dumped into this line and I think its destined to fail myself.
American TLG/TRU, you shouldn't toy with our feelings :D
